We are delighted to share the news that B Lab, the nonprofit organization behind the B Corporation movement, has recognized us as one of the ‘Best for the Environment’ B Corps in the Small Business category! To receive this distinction, we ranked in the top 10% for our environmental score on the B Impact Assessment, along with fellow B Corps Method Products, Namaste Solar, Patagonia, and more.
We chose to become a B Corp in order to more fully walk our talk and to make ourselves publicly accountable for our economic, social, and environmental performance as an organization. More than 700 companies are now certified as B Corps and, so far, 16 states—including our home state of Colorado—have passed ‘benefit corporation’ legislation, allowing companies to legally incorporate as a benefit corporation. 16 additional states, including Delaware, where more than 900,000 U.S. companies are incorporated, are currently considering benefit corporation legislation.
